Behind a banner proclaiming “First chores on feminist strike”, the watchword this year was to denounce the injustices suffered by women, accentuated by the health crisis. Character born of American propaganda during the Second World War, “Rosie the Riveter” has become one of the symbols of the feminist struggle today.
